I dedicate todays epic ride to the banana. Without them I would still be out on the road suffering like a dog. They’re cheap, everywhere, biodegradable and pack a lot of easy to absorb calories. I started to bonk big time at mile 50 and regret not taking my go to snack of trail mix with me. I thought my delicious egg sandwich could hold me over for the entire 75 miles. It didn’t. In addition to 3 bananas I had a Pay Day and some sweat tea. That’s why I’ll always carry at least one dollar. You can usually score two to three bananas, which, in my case, gets you another hour of solid effort. I may even consider getting one of these.
